The culture that created this lovely vase has vanished into time, leaving behind only tantalizing clues like this. Behind this delicate glass--whose survival seems a whim of fate--there is no doubt a history filled with human dreams and passions, though we can only guess at the truth. Still, when we gaze upon this vessel with pleasure, we are surely sharing something specific with a person who lived long ago. - (GF.0039)
